"Deltek Review"

Comments: It is an ok system overall but there needs to be a huge update to the system to compete with it's competitors. The strong point is that most government contractor are using Deltek Time and Attendance since it is engineered for this industry so people are more likely to get the HRIS system to integrate easily with timesheets.

Pros: The system has a pretty easy interface to enter in basic information such as personal information, checking, tax information, and updating benefits. The ESS system once setup, it is pretty great for the employees as they can choose benefits through open enrollment, update tax information and update their address information. The reporting is simple for standard reports and can be easily pulled in excel format so you are able to manipulate the spreadsheets.

Cons: The software is very outdated and has not been updated in several years. Other systems are light years ahead of this system as it looks like it is from the 1990's. The custom reporting is very clunky and hard to create any of these reports as there are many files to look into and no intelligent search functions. You can only pull the reports in excel format so there not other options such as CSV and PDF. The ESS section is also out of date and not very integrative to the HRIS system. The setup for benefits, tax and validations tables in the back end of the system is hard to recognize and makes it harder for complete setup. There is ACA integration as well and it makes it hard that you have to click on separate sections of the screen to look at information rather than clicking one repository to reach all of the information.

"Deltek"

Pros: Deltek Costpoint is a great software tool to manage parts, inventory, finances and cost reports.
It is very easy to use if you are aware that the first priority of Costpoint is a financial tool.
It is customizable to link to other software for ERP and MES solutions.

Cons: There is a dedicated support team, but for an enterprise solution there aren't many options for individual sites.

"This Software is a must have for any Gov't Contractor that wants to do business in this space"

Pros: The application is very powerful and very flexible which allows you to set things up for your business as simply or as complex as you would like. The ability to enter everything only once and capture all the data needed to properly allocate all of your Fringe / Overhead / G&A or Material & Handling Cost Pools is critical to being able to prepare DCAA / DCMA compliant Invoices, DCAA Disclosure Statements and Incurred Cost Submissions. Every module that you add on automatically links with the existing Accounting data so no extra steps are needed to get different modules to talk to one another.

Cons: Not always easy to tell if or when a patch is needed to update a specific module. Don't really know anything is needed until you run into an error message. Sometimes it is hard to update or patch just the application that is giving you problems because fixes can cover more then one application.

"CostPoint Review"

Comments: Overall, if you are in the government contracting industry, CostPoint is as reliable as a software as any out there. With its wide acceptance across the industry, it is a extremely useful software to be familiar with.

Pros: CostPoint is an extremely powerful and a widely used accounting software. One of its best features is the ability to accommodate a diverse set of accounting and financial needs and the innate ability to run seamless interfaces with other Deltek products such as T&E and Cognos. It's relatively easy to use and can be picked up by most users quickly.

Cons: Costpoint lags behind its competitor in the innovation it offers it's users and customers. They software updates are infrequent and often do not result in any major updates and upgrades. There are also many areas of functionality within Costpoint that seem to be offer duplicity and could be improved.

"Easy Timecards"

Comments: Overall, I've been very pleased in my experience with the software. Entering my time is easier than software used in my last job, and corrections are easier to make. My time cards have been easy to read and understand when going back to review them!

Pros: This software allows a user to easily access their timecards and log their time. Saving favorite codes for items such as contracts worked, favorites, leave, etc. is a breeze.

Cons: I haven't encountered any issues thus far. There can be an overwhelming number of time codes depending on the company you work for.

"Need improvement with standard reports"

Pros: Ease of movement around system. The query function is a great way to filter info.

Cons: The standard reports are very poor. I wonder if they consulted actual users and asked what they needed. Has forced us to use cognos query and writer which is not user friendly. There are standard reports such as dispatch lists that should be part of the package.

"A few kinks but easy to use"

Pros: The platform is decently organized by Employee/Salary information and Leave information - managing either is simple and the accrual process is easy as well. I manage employee data and leave data but I am not an expert on any of the other system capabilities.

Cons: We've had issues with file feeds that have taken a long time to resolve. There are a few manual processes that need to be done during the accrual process that seem like they should be automated (i.e. removing duplicate beginning balance records when an employee goes from one type of leave to another in the same year).

"There aren't many good products in the Market, but dealing with Deltek is awful"

Comments: It does meet Government Accounting Requirements

Pros: It does have a lot of features that support Government Accounting. It allows us to enter very detailed levels of project string, ORG codes, and GL Account Codes for every transaction.

Cons: User Interface is terrible - still looks like a mainframe screen. Customer support while friendly is not very helpful. They always try to push a support ticket to their paid consulting services. I feel like they are always trying to get more money out of us.

"Costpoint Review"

Comments: Coming from GCS to Costpoint the depth that we can now get information from is amazing.

Pros: Having the ability to keep multiple period open at once is convenient. It allows us the chance to make sure that our data is correct before moving on. The increase in the number of available characters in our project numbers really helps in the organization process.

Cons: The increase in the number of steps to get our information out of costpoint seems unnecessary.

"Been using Deltek since 1999"

Comments: We have had some recent not so positive experience with Support - being told for almost everything to apply the latest patches when they can't show us where in the patches it is going to fix our problem is not encouraging. After working through all the Hot Fix applications - we still have the problem - so, being to to apply them did not help. (Just a bit discouraging.)

Pros: We love the Web version and capabilities - looking forward to Extensibility

Cons: Changing support staff, getting someone from the other side of the world and having to wait until the next evening to get a call back.

"Reliable product from a reliable company"

Comments: Having used Costpoint and Time & Expense since 2008, I'm comfortable and confident with the breadth of the tools' functionality, as well as the critically important support provided by Deltek.

Pros: I most appreciate the stability of the processes built into the products.

Cons: As the products have evolved, they've unavoidably become complex, which makes for a large amount of details with which to become familiar.
